800m from the start of Watkins walk up to the top of Snowdon and a lovely cafe. 4 miles from the picturesque village of Beddgelert this is the perfect base for everything Snowdon has to offer. Comfortable beds, large kitchen diner and a large lounge there was plenty of space for our party of 9. We plan to visit again.

The cottage is brilliant, in a perfect location for all the nearby attractions and villages, with lovely views of the mountains. Very easy to get to the steam trains which are highly recommended for a day out. The owner provides good instructions for your arrival and further information is available in the cottage. She also rings up to check if...

About the neighbourhood
Beddgelert is a charming conservation village in the heart of the National Park. Frequently commended in Britain in Bloom and even Europe in Bloom competitions, the delightful village centre retains its traditional feel. Although deservedly popular with tourists visiting the bogus dog's grave, Beddgelert has not been spoiled by tourism the way some other villages have.

There's not that much to do here - visit a copper mine, walk the wild Fisherman's path down the Aberglasyn Gorge, admire the character cottages - but it's a great place to be. It nestles spectacularly in a small plain dominated by it's own mountain, Moel Hebog, and there are mountain and valley views in every direction. There's a good choice of pubs and restaurants, and just enough local faciliti...

How to get there
Driving to Nant Gwynant is certain to get you into the holiday mood, as from every direction the scenery is fabulous.

If coming from the North, our recommended route is via Llanberis. Leave the A55 coastal trunk road near Bangor, then follow signs to Llanberis. Keep going straight through the village,then the road starts to climb eventually reaching Pen y Pass, a starting point for Snowdon hikes. The views over Llyn Gwynant and the Nant Gwynant valley as you descend the other side are splendid indeed. Turn right at the Pen Y Gwryd hotel (where Sir Edmund Hilary and Sherpa Tenzing trained for their Everest ascent). There's a lay-by part way down which makes a for good photo stop: one one side you have the Snowdon Horseshoe, to the left you look along the valley to Yr Aran and Nant...
